After reading through one kazillion threads i decided to post my problem:
1. Iphone was fully functional
2. I tried pwning. Got the pinnaple and steve logo
3. Tried to restore with iThor custom recovery
3. Now phone is stuck in recovery mode.
What I tried so far:
1. Restoring in DFU on 3 computers. Thing is that i'm constantly getting error 6
2. Tried restoring with different firmware starting from 1.1.4, 1.1.3 and various custom builds.
Nothing seems to work. The only thing i get is the Steve logo and that is it.
Also tried iLiberty+ on windows with jailbreak / unlock options. It gave me some errors regarding HFS partition and unknown firmware. IF relevant i can repost with what it says. Idemocracry does not recognise my Iphone at all.
What else can i do because I'm left with no hope now.

have you tried restoring with the stock 1.1.4 firmware? if not try that...

According to apple (error 6) you need to upgrade your iTunes. If you are fully up to date I would uninstall iTunes... reboot... reinstall itunes and try DFU restoring. By the way, you are aware that a DFU restore means your screen will be BLACK... not have the Steve (or any other graphic) on the screen.

my itunes is up to date. Also i tried restoring to stock 1.1.4. And i studied all itunes errors. DFU is the mode to restore. Unfortunatelly that is not working also. Usually i get the 6 error while restoring in DFU mode.
The thing that worries me the most is the unknown firmware that iLiberty+ returns when i try to do the jailbreak/unlock process. It's to me like a PC with a busted boot sector. But for that at least i have a cure. I rewrite the MBR. But with the iPhone...

I have the same problem with an unlocked, activated, and anysim iPhone.
Have tried different USB, different user, different computer, even tried on a PC. Same situation. Phone stays stuck in recovery mode.
If I figure it out, I will post...

any error under 20 means you aren't in dfu
make sure your in dfu
if you are not sure what dfu mode is it is when the screen is BLACK but itunes recognizes it
